If I don't put a caption on my table, I don't get the "Table 2.2" label underneath it. If I add a blank caption, I get "Table 2.2:". How do I get rid of the ":"?

I am using memoir and threeparttable. Within the threeparttable, I am using a tabular, but I don't think that matters.

No need to load extra packages; memoir is a very versatile class that offers its own features, in this case, \captiondelim:



\chapter{Test Chapter}


enter image description here

Remark: in fact, loading caption with the memoir class triggers a warning:

Class memoir Warning: You are using the caption package with the memoir class. This may cause unexpected or inconsistent results if you use any of memoir's captioning facilities.


add \usepackage{caption} in the preamble. It should automatically remove the colon before empty captions.

  • Thank you, this works. It's surprising that memoir doesn't automatically include caption. Does caption interfere with ccaption, which is automatically included by memoir?

  • I didn't use the ccaption or memoir packages before and my undestanding of LaTeX in general is still limited... If i had to guess, i'd say it depends on which you include first.
